Anaphora: In writing or speech, the deliberate repetition of the first part of the sentence in order to achieve an artistic effect is known as Anaphora. Anaphora, possibly the oldest literary device, has its roots in Biblical Psalms used to emphasize certain words or phrases.
Have you seen that little girl? The one with little, loose pigtails and torn shoes. Carrying hope in her little heart and doused candles in her little hands.
Have you seen her as she trips and falls on slippery sidewalks? Chilled to her bones, she walks on and on, in the rain. Her little feet leaving soft footprints on the sludge that the rain won't wash away.
She's frail but she's never been weak. She has walked so far, she won't ever turn back. She knows these lanes like the back of her hand. She fades away.
Rocking on her heels, her chest heaving with all the unsaid drudgery, she poured and poured and poured. What was rain to the torrents of her pain? Nothing; and nothing more than an ugly metaphor.
You haven't seen her and you probably won't ever see. She has been carrying her weight, her world, on her little shoulders. She will still do it till she breathes her last wishes away.
But have you thought of her? Have you thought of her to be that little pinprick of light in all your darkness? A heart that could take your pain and make it hurt a little less. Have you thought of her as someone who could look at you and make you feel more at home?
